Haven't seen but one deer this year. I really need some meat. Hope this weekend produces.

it's our first year in Eastland so I don't know what's "normal" but the deer seem pretty scarce. We've seen our share of does and young bucks but nothing worth sticking a scope out the window. I shot a hog this year....and that's it.

Hunted there last year and saw 2 scraggly does and 1 4 point all year. Anything legal you see, shoot it!

Good luck!

Do yall ever think that the reason you are not seeing deer is because when one pops out you shoot it? Just my opinion.

let about 30 walk this season alone.....haven't shot a buck that was less than 5 years old in the last 15 yrs....not seeing deer vs. not seeing the right deer is two different things....stick that in your opinion.

I agree with what u said about.. not seeing deer vs. not seeing the right deer. But the way I have been understanding what everyone has said about eastland county is that they have not even been seeing deer or signs of deer not that it was not the right one.

ours are nocturnal. lots of tracks and something is eating my corn. it's just been a bad year in eastland. we have a funny place too. it's 190 acres between a high fence and the road. kind of like a funnel.

It's hard to manage a deer herd when they all get shot as soon as they cross the fence. I'm spending an s load on feed just to feed hogs I never see during the day.

We're getting tons of picks but all does and young bucks....nothing over 3.5 yrs old....and a lot of them at night. I do have pics of some nice bucks on this lease from several years ago but they're not around anymore...this being our first year I didn't expect much. Going to set up a few pens and gravity feed in our "no-fly zone" for spring and summer so hopefully we can get some better bucks in play for next year. Gonna give it a good effort and if there's still no mature deer....I'm out.

Didn't get to hunt after the first Monday of gun season this year and saw 4 bucks and 3 does that day, shot a 3pt that was 2.5 with a 12" spike on one side. During bow season saw deer almost every sit just not the one I was looking for. What concerns me more was lack of fawns, saw 2 while hunting this year. Groups of 4 and 5 does with no fawns in the mix. Neighbor said be saw very few fawns also, he did get the buck we had both been after for 2 years big congrats to him.

I hunt mostly during the week and see more deer then than on the weekends when there are lots of hunters out. They know when hunters are out IMO. The deer were nocturnal around the feeders this year from the cameras but enough activity to see some during the day.

Good luck the rest of the season for those getting to hunt. Historically the deer on the place I hunt there January and February are times they hit the feeders the hardest.
